Situated between the desert and the sea, the Sonoma House by Mexican architecture practice Roca Arquitectos offers its dwellers the best of both worlds in a relaxed, holiday setting. Located in Mexico’s Cabo San Lucas and composed of a series of concrete geometric structures, the architecture studio paid careful attention in bringing in a lot of natural light and cross ventilation into the interiors through wide spaces, high ceilings, outdoor patios, and floor-to-ceiling openings.
The elongated volume at the centre of Sonoma House functions as the common area, a convivial space where the living area, dining room and kitchen converge. This opens up to an outdoor patio fronting the luxurious, 10 meter (33 feet) swimming pool and jacuzzi, across which we find another patio with a lounge area and fire pit.
Given its isolated location, the home relies on an off-grid solar energy system for their daily needs, pushing its dwellers to be more conscious of what they consume, and ultimately allowing them to take in the surrounding landscape without the distractions of normal life… the ultimate definition of holiday bliss.
